Arts ‘N’ Kids is an after school musical theatre program engaging children ages 7-11 in activities where they learn musical theatre skills that are also increasing self-confidence and self-esteem, focus and concentration, cooperation, and positive risk-taking. This program is open to all students and there is no audition for the program. The program is held in three different schools.

Students attend two one hour classes per week for each of the four six week sessions. Arts ‘N’ Kids gives your child the opportunity to learn from theater and dance professionals.  We end each 6 week session with a performance for their families, friends and community members.

Arts ’N’ Kids is supported mainly by grants. There is a $50.00 fee for each six week session but we have scholarships to subsidize those who cannot afford to pay, so that no child will be denied access to the program due to lack of financial support.

Made possible by the generous support of:

The Leonard C. and Mildred F. Ferguson Foundation
The United Way of Eastern Maine
Realty of Maine
The First National Bank

I have been associated with the Dance Program and Arts N Kids Program in my school for more than 10 years. As a school counselor, I have first hand knowledge that of the positive impact these programs have on our students. While participating in these programs students learn camaraderie, establish positive companionship, learn socially acceptable norms demonstrated by some members of the program peer group, as well as learning valuable performing arts skills.
